Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Stage director Graham Vick and set designer Paul Brown conjure up an "open-air spectacle of superlatives" (Die Zeit) that throws a bridge between ancient Egypt and today's U.S. The stage effects are stunning: ruins of the Statue of Liberty pieced together with the help of giant cranes, boats carrying priestesses and prisoners - parts of the opera even take place in the lake itself! And in the Grand March - one of the most famous marches in opera - a golden elephant comes sailing into view on a barge! Under Carlo Rizzi, the Wiener Symphoniker brilliantly support the chorus and soloists, among whom Iano Tamar (Amneris) and Tatiana Serjan (Aida) stand out.
